Health Monitoring Tools Eyed for Helping Elderly Population
As the baby boomer population ages, more organizations are developing remote health monitoring tools as a way to help seniors remain in their homes. Thomas Nesbitt -- UC Davis' associate vice chancellor for strategic technologies and alliances -- said UC-Davis Medical Center is scheduled to open a Telehealth Resource Center next summer to train medical professionals on the use of home telehealth technologies. Experts say using such tools can help cut health care costs, but lack of awareness of such products persists.
